About me and my blog

Guy Pelham

I blog mostly about my favourite corner of Spain — Villajoyosa on the Costa Blanca — but also anything or anywhere else in Spain that takes my fancy. It’s a fascinating country!

I’m based in London, but spend as much time in Villajoyosa (aka La Vila Joiosa, or La Vila for short) as I can. That’s why this blog is called “View from La Vila”.

My wife is Spanish, so I’ve been spending time in Spain – especially the area around Alicante – for more years than I care to remember. I can’t resist Spanish food and wine, so I post a lot about both – plus my favourite walks to lose the calories afterwards. You’ll also find musings here on everything from the Romans to rugby.

Obviously, Covid-19 has had a huge impact on Spain, and many of the locations I feature here have only opened up again this summer, so please check before you visit.
